The MS hug

I’ve had ms a couple of years and I’ve had my fill of problems!! But when I’m finally feeling like me again, BOOM I’ve developed this MS hug and it’s really taking a toll on my mental health. My family have to watch me howl in pain witch then ends up triggering a panic attack!! It’s awful for my family to see and I’m not dealing well with it, I am on medication 100mg of gabapentin 3 times a day, I had to start taking 200 mg today as it’s strikes again. Does anyone else suffer with this ???

I get an uncomfortable pain in my ribs every now and then and feels like I've pulled a muscle or need to stretch but luckily for me its not an unbearable pain


I have had the Ms hug on and off for over 30 years I find the Ms hug gets worse when I'm stressed out the only way I found to combat the Ms hug is to take relaxing medications that I have done to help control the pain etc I take THC CBD oil and that really does help with my Ms hug the pain is in describably bad I really hope that you find something like I have to help
